Exterior Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has asserted that India’s strategic buy insurance policies have performed a big position in stabilsing world oil and fuel markets even because the warfare between Russia and Ukraine disrupted the trade.

His feedback got here throughout a dialog with journalist Lionel Barber throughout a chat titled ‘How a Billion People See the World’ in London. “When it comes to the purchase of oil…In fact, at least India was a big enough country to command some respect in the markets but there were much smaller countries that didn’t even get responses to their tender inquiries because the LNG suppliers were no longer interested in dealing with them, they have bigger fish to fry,” Jaishankar mentioned.

He added, “So we’ve actually softened the oil markets and the gas markets through our purchase policies. We have, as a consequence actually managed global inflation…I’m waiting for the thank you.”

India-Canada row

Throughout the identical occasion, Jaishankar was requested about Canada’s allegation of India’s involvement within the killing of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar.

“Look, if you have a reason to make such an allegation, please share the evidence with us. We are not ruling out an investigation and looking at anything which they may have to offer. They haven’t done so,” the overseas minister mentioned including that Canada has not but shared any proof on Nijjar’s homicide with India.

“Canadian politics has given space to violent and extreme political opinions which advocate separatism from India, including through violent means,” he mentioned.

“These people have been accommodated in Canadian politics. They are given the freedom to articulate their views…Freedom of speech and freedom of expression also comes with a certain responsibility. The misuse of those freedoms and the toleration of that misuse for political purposes would be very wrong.”
